Wear a 34", ordered a 34" and they fit perfectly as overpants but not too bulky. I ordered the T and they are the perfect length when sitting. The kneepads are low when standing, as other people have stated, but they come up perfectly when you sit down. The pants are meant to be worn quite high which is to say where normal pants used to be worn :) They zip up to my TPG Rainier perfectly when worn this way (why'd they discontinue that jacket?!). They were very good in a 45min rain ride, keeping me dry internally but holding a decent amount of water themselves. They are not water repellent on the outer layer.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sidi Discovery Rain Boots Features Membrane equipped to add a water resistant yet breathable barrier between the elements and the riders feet. Soft rubber sole for maximum grip. Replaceable strap system. Top grain leather and Lorica construction. Composite inner sole. Removable arch support. Exclusive cam-lock buckle system. Cambrelle lining Slim, cool non-bootie design. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel. Non-Bootie Designs Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome add to the boot's thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the rider's performance and comfort. Buckles Sidis exclusive cam-lock buckle system is acknowledged as the finest system on the planet. It must be as most of Sidis competitors have attempted to copy various aspects of it. The cam-lock buckle system incorporates a strap memory retention system. Adjust the straps once and they will be at the same position for every ride after that! No more readjusting for every ride or mid-day during a ride. Heat Shields Each Sidi boot is equipped with an anti-heat undressed leather protection panel at the same height of most motorcycles exhaust heat shields. Replaceable Parts Every bolt on component of each Sidi off road boot is available separately. Riders can change the various components to replace items that have worn or have been damaged in a crash or to make a custom colored boot to match his/her personal taste. Composite Insole A cushioned liner is provided that can be removed if the rider desires a more roomy fit. Sidi does not use steel shanks riveted to its insole like most manufactures, details such as this enable Sidi boots to enjoy a multi year service life versus the competitors multi month lifespan as over time, a steel shank can deteriorate, rust and fracture exposing the rider to injury. Lining Cambrelle is a lining that, due to its particular polyimide structure, guarantees a rapid drying rate after the boot gets wet or sweaty. This prevents the onset of mold forming which extends the boots lifespan dramatically. The Teflon treated mesh panels in the rear calf area of the boot allow humidity to escape while the boot is in use.

Been riding the boot for a few months now and it has been great. It is water proof as a few solid rain rides have proven as well as an offroad trip where some extensive water crossings were made. If you flood it it's also great at holding in water but those are the perils of deeper crossings :)
It is comfortable, easy on/off and setting up the buckles only once is really nice. Going on a big journey in two weeks that'll really put them to the test!
I tried a foot bed to fill them out a touch more but it made them too tight. They are close to fine without it but just a little bit roomy. Still comfortable though with no hot spots.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I used the sizing chart to choose my size and it turned out to be perfect. The gloves feel great and one thing that really impressed me was how well the gloves fit either over or under my jacket cuffs (Firstgear Rainier) just like advertised. I kind of doubted how well that would actually work out but it's really a nice fit either way. They're comfy and will only get better the more I ride them.

Having bought this jacket at the start of a Canadian winter I have not had the chance to ride it yet. The fit and finish of the product is impeccable though and the styling I really love! I want to wear it all the time but my wife thinks that'd be lame.
My one concern is the padding. It has the size for good coverage but seems kind of finicky in its placement. I found trial and error to be the best way to get the best feel and two or three tries should have it feeling right.
Yes, I recommend this product.
